What House Packing Materials to Use
In preparation for your house move you have to consider the packing materials which you will need. There are a number of sources of getting your boxes
- the local supermarket
- used industrial boxes, maybe from your place of work
- boxes which have been used by friends who have recently moved
All the above boxes may be suitable, however. Consider what the boxes have been used for and are they the fit for purpose. For example, is a crisp box from a supermarket suitable to hold books. . the simple answer is “No”.
If the wrong boxes are used then they will not be strong enough and the contents will be at risk of damage. When the wrong types of boxes are stacked the weight will compress the boxes below causing the boxes to crush or worse topple over whilst in the vehicle.
When using re-used boxes some of the boxes may be damaged, damp or old – this will result in the boxes being difficult to handle (worse having the bottom drop out).
The Right Packing Materials to Use
The best solution for your boxes is to have the Removals Company supply them. They will provide boxes that they recommend which will be strong, fit for purpose and will stack properly.
